The Gospel and the Mind, by Bradley G. Green

The Gospel and the Mind, by Bradley G. Green

I just read The Gospel and the Mind: Recovering and Shaping the Intellectual Life by Bradley G Green.  I’m wondering why it took me so long. Read it: I predict you will wonder the same thing. I’ve read theories of knowledge before. I’ve never come across one that put it in such a theological and ethical light as this one does. It’s not epistemology, it’s ethics: the kind of persons we need to be in order to know anything truly at…

‘I think Plato probably wrote a story about Socrates’ — Says Atheist ‘Teacher’ of ‘Socratic Method’

‘I think Plato probably wrote a story about Socrates’ — Says Atheist ‘Teacher’ of ‘Socratic Method’

Several years ago I locked horns with Professor Peter Boghossian and his acolyte James Lindsay over Boghossian’s Manual for Creating Atheists, part of which involves using dialogue to get people to question where their faith comes from. Boghossian’s “Street Epistemology” method has been gaining steam, mostly led by one Anthony Magnabosco who takes video of these conversations and posts them on YouTube. Magnabosco and Boghossian both call this a “Socratic Dialogue” sort of exchange. Which is why I was stunned — literally…

FamilyLife Interviews on Homosexuality and Your Children!

FamilyLife Interviews on Homosexuality and Your Children!

Links to my talks with FamilyLife on teens and homosexuality, based on Critical Conversations: A Christian Parents’ Guide to Discussing Homosexuality With Teens. The second one was the tough one: On the hot seat, answering the kinds of challenging questions I want to help parents with. It’s easier when you’re not doing it on the radio! But the first conversation matters, too, as an introduction to the issues of marriage and morality, and how to talk about it with your kids. Not…

Help Fund the Poached Egg!

Help Fund the Poached Egg!

It’s one of my proudest claims to fame here at Thinking Christian: Greg West, who runs the famous Poached Egg website, tells me I was the first blogger to link to the site. It was early in 2011, when no one knew yet that the Poached Egg would become the top apologetics aggregator site on the Internet. Greg has been scouring the web for apologetics news and insights ever since then. He’s garnered praise from the best in the business. His site, named after…

FamilyLife Interview On Critical Conversations Coming Thursday and Friday!

FamilyLife Interview On Critical Conversations Coming Thursday and Friday!

Coming this Thursday and Friday — my on-air conversation with Dennis Rainey and Bob Lepine on keeping our kids in the faith, in a world that keeps telling them it’s “bigoted,” “homophobic,” “against equality,” and more like that. Our conversation is based on my book Critical Conversations: A Christian Parents’ Guide to Discussing Homosexuality With Teens. (The title shouldn’t have said it’s all about teens; the questions and conversations can — and should! — start much younger.) Check local listings here (enter your…

No, Christian Leaders Are Not Theocracy-Seeking ‘Taliban’

No, Christian Leaders Are Not Theocracy-Seeking ‘Taliban’

Mehdi Hasan of The Intercept posted an incendiary video accusing Christian leaders (“mullahs” and “caliphs” he calls them) of promoting theocracy and Sharia. The “Christian Taliban,” he calls it. Someone asked me to respond. This one is by audio. My criticism of this video is very strongly worded, but nowhere near as strong as Hasan’s vilification of Christian leaders. Another difference: Mine is honest and proportionate. I mean that quite soberly.
